Default 3d Star Maps

Just an amusing observation about 3d star maps. Of the real universe, not Traveller, necessarily.

I picked 4 maps from the internet and observed the relative positions of 5 stars: Sol, Alpha Centauri, Barnard's Star, Wolf 359 and Sirius. None of the 4 maps agree with each other. LOL

Which one is right?
